MB Trading: MT4 or Navigator?

Postby joec2323 » Sun May 16, 2010 11:40 pm

I'm in the process of opening an account on MB Trading and am at the point where I must decide whether to use Meta Trader 4 or MB Navigator. I've downloaded both platforms and have a demo account on MT4. In comparing the two, MT4 seems much more user friendly, but I've read quite a few traders (I think including TRO) that use MT4 to chart and Navigator to trade. What is the benefit of trading on Navigator?...level II quotes? I want to make sure I'm not overlooking anything before making a decision since I can't switch later. Any advice or experience using the different platforms would be appreciated. Thanks!

Better limit order implementation is the reason I see most often quoted to use Navigator.

I opened both accounts. MT4 for charting and navigator for order entry. This is the best for me even though Navigator can be fritzy every now and then.

Thanks guys.

Newark, what do you mean about Nav being fritzy every now and then?

Is anyone using MT4? If so, how do you like it?

I personally had issues with navigator freezing up on me, problems closing trades, and etc. I haven't had an issue recently. Last time was when the market crashed due to the suspected fat finger.
